I'm grateful to David Reardon for collecting these stories. For those of us who unexpectedly suffer significant emotional distress or even trauma after abortion, it is such a relief to realize that we are not alone and not crazy. When I came across this book, it broke down my isolation and gave me hope for healing. I looked around for other resources to help me pursue that healing and have been incredibly grateful to find them. For me, knowing that other women also suffered was a vital first step toward recovery.

This is an invaluable book for anyone interested in the abortion issue. It details the very real emotional and physical fallout of elective abortion, and features the strained voices of women victimized by what our society calls "safe, legal abortion." Abuses against the poor and women of color are particulary distressing to read about. I hope every woman considering abortion will read this book first.

I own a copy of this book printed in the 80's. I assumed the new edition would have updated statistics. Unfortinately its just a reprint, not really a new edition.

The book is powerful but the stats need to be updated.

I liked this book so much that after reading it in the library, I bought it on Amazon.com. I want my daughter (and son) to read it when they get older. After hearing so much pro-choice rhetoric EVERYWHERE, it is refreshing to read what I've always felt has been true in my heart. This book is pro-life FROM THE PERSPECTIVE OF WOMEN WHO HAVE HAD ABORTIONS, making it unique in my eyes. It mentions the physical and psychological risks of abortion, that are all too often glossed over by the pro-choice advocates. Even the hardest cases for abortion, like rape and incest are addressed with candor and compassion from women who've been there. This book covers the impact abortion has on later children and problems women have with infertility and the breast cancer link. This book does NOT sit in judgement of women who've had abortions. That's the beauty of it, too. It is rather a cautionary tale, a means of educating women (and men, too). There are other options. Women deserve better than to be rejected for being pregnant, and killing their unborn when they think there's no other "choices". This book is TRUE FEMINISM...it is the love of women in their most vulnerable state. "Mother and child are as one, and they cannot be separated without doing violence to both." (Truly feminism should be the love and acceptance of women for what nature intended them to be at some point in their lives...mothers.)

I must also mention that this book accurately paints abortion as the money-making industry that it is, not a sacrament meant for the betterment of womankind.

I hope an expanded, newer edition comes out. I'll buy that, too.

Format: Paperback
Abortion continues to be one of the most important Christian social issues during the past 15 years. As blacks during the civil rights movement, hundreds of Christians are currently opting for jail in their fight for the rights of the unborn. Aborted Woman demonstrates that abortion not only concerns the life of the unborn: millions of women are being both physically and psychologically damaged by these savage acts. New ministries are opening up to counselors who seek to heal the hurt that abortion has brought into the lives of women. Reardon analyzes the aftereffects of abortion in the lives of 252 WEBA (Women Exploited by Abortion) members, comparing them to the scarce statistics available about the others millions of women who abort their children every year around the world.

His conclusions are alarming. With the cooperation of the courts, abortion providers have undertaken a major effort to cover up the morbidity and mortality rates of legal abortion. The minimum rate of immediate physical complications following legal abortions, based on reported figures, is ten percent. Long-term complications occur in 20 to 50 percent of all aborted women, and are especially high in teenagers and women who abort their first pregnancy. "Each year, over 100,000 women in America suffer the loss of a wanted baby to miscarriage, to premature birth, or to other labor complications" due to latent abortion morbidity. Contrary to the cover-up of abortion defenders, more than 90 percent of aborted women experience moderate to severe emotional and psychiatric stress following an abortion. Up to 10 percent require psychiatric hospitalization, one to two percent are unable to work, and all face a suicide risk nine times higher than that of women who don't have abortions.
